Giovanni Lo Curto, was born in Palermo in 1983. He is a self-taught photojournalist and photographer based in between Germany, Cuba, Greece and Italy. His work focuses on contemporary social, political, religious and economic issues. He explores the relationship between human identity, memories and places. He sees a strong link between the perception of oneself and the way people remember and store personal and shared memories — making an inextricable link between personal identity and the surrounding environment. He prefers to work on long-term documentary projects because it gives the best opportunity to represent the complexity of a story fully and allows him to bond with his subject. The idea is to have a mutual exchange with the subject that lasts beyond the time of the reporting. His work has been published in magazines and newspapers such as ND, TAZ, FHZZ, CONTRASTE, Cargo, Chorzeit.
In 2018, he was selected to study with the VII photo agency in their Warsaw-based Masterclass.
